Product description

The 12th volume in the best-selling, award-winning FABLES series collects the epic from issues #76-82 of the acclaimed monthly series. If you've ever craved a guided tour of Fabletown's secret Manhattan location, prepare to be thrilled. Pinocchio has a field day taking a certain VIP around the city. And exactly which Fabletown denizens are no longer active (dead, alive or otherwise) just might shock you into a comic book coma. Also in this volume, you'll find the 4-part story featuring Freddy and Mouse, two local rogues who just want to get along and perhaps turn a bit of profit in the post-war, topsy-turvy world. Meanwhile, in Fabletown, a new political group forms called the Society of Seconds, and what they want doesn't seem very reasonable at all.

By 365 Graphic Novels 15 Nov 2013 4

Every fable needs a bad guy and with The Adversary out of the way what are we to do? Find something darker and more deadly of course. Willingham wastes no time in upping the ante and bringing all the joy of the previous volume crashing down. There is a really emotional core to this book as well as a sense of creeping dread. Not to mention a wry dose of social commentary and musing on the nature of dictatorships. This volume has pretty much everything.

There are quite a few artists working on this book and we see a welcome return of the wonderful Michael Allred and his beautiful style. The book is divided up sensibly amongst the artists with each playing to their strengths and Buckingham tackling the meaty plot.

Another Thumbs Up!

Review quote

"An epic, beautifully written story that places Fables, familiar characters from folklore, in the mundane world after a mysterious Adversary conquers their homelands ... the series has proved tremendously popular."
